Every month since 1999, I master between 70-90 Hip Hop and Rap tracks. That's 70-90 every month! I'm highly experienced and know hip hop music very well! I work on a lot of hip hop and rap songs every week.

Do You Know If Your Mix Is Right? If your mix is bad, the masters you get back aren't going to sound very good. Unfortunately, 95% of the online Hip Hop mastering companies aren't going to tell this. They'll just master whatever you give them, and if your mix has major errors, they won't tell you. They just master it and give you back a CD full of crappy quality songs. Legally scamming you out of your money and time.
Here at JR mastering, I review every song before I master it. And if there are any major errors in your mix, I tell you how to fix them. This rare (unheard of) service I provide is the only way you're going to get great mastering results, and that's my goal for your project!

What does mastering do to a song? Your main goal in audio mastering is to replicate the sonic qualities of a well professionally mastered commercial song, in the same genre and style as the song mix you are working on.
The vibrato and tremolo effects both have their differences. But the vibrato and tremolo effects also sound very similar; both slightly wave and pulsate the pitch of an audio track. You have to hear it for yourself to understand the sound.
Since the begining of his solo career in 2008, I mastered over 80 songs with the top French recording artist NYLS. Great pop dance music with a lot of remixes.
